The Grand Canyon is marvelous to look upon, for about 15 minutes. Although I am in awe with its beauty and grandeur, I can't just stand there and stare at the canyon for more than 15 minutes. I wanted to hike down below or to a waterfall, go water rafting, or anything but just stand by and observe. Our kids are so young to be doing all those activies. This is not to say that it was not memorable spending time with each other. By the time we revisit, hopefully all the kids will be able to hike and have real adventures to remember.
